Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.2.1

  • A preference has been added to make Black Hole quit after Quick Cleanup has completed.
Version 1.2
  • A new Logs Cleaner with Quick Look preview of log files!
  • Quick Cleanup : Drag a file or folder on the Black Hole icon and see what happens!
  • New, slicker main window graphics and a shiny new icon.
  • Growl notifications support.
  • All cleaners that delete files now use secure deletion if activated (previously the Recent Items Cleaner didn't).
  • The Black Hole Dock icon can now bounce when cleaning is done.
  • Better keyboard navigation : Added key equivalents in the main window : press A to open the Applications panel, C to open the Clipboard panel, etc. Also added Ctrl-N and Ctrl-O shortcuts to create new rules and browse for files in the appropriate cleaner panels.
  • Added a menu item to start cleanup from the application's Dock menu; you don't have to bring up Black Hole's main window to start a cleanup anymore.
  • Black Hole can now quit automatically after cleanup is done.
  • New Recent Items rules for Movist, MPlayer OSX Extended.
  • New Files and Folders rules for Safari Form Values and Safari Cookies.
  • You cannot submit a default rule anymore. A lot of you tried the button with a default rule for fun it seems! ;)
  • Fixed a bug where rm and srm (file deletion) would keep running if Black Hole was quit while cleaning.
